DISTRACTION THEFTS – DAYTONA BEACH, FL

On 3/5/21, three female subjects approached a jewelry kiosk in a mall and one of them asked to see a chain. As the chain was placed on the display pad, the third female walked away from the presentation while the second asked to see nose rings. The sales associate reached into the case for the nose rings and when he looked back up, the chain was missing from the pad. When the guests were questioned, they claimed they didn’t take the chain. One of the women purchased the nose rings and they walked to another jewelry kiosk in the same mall.

The two sales associates from the first kiosk approached the women to question them again. The two women attempted the same distraction theft of a $549.00 chain which was missing from the display pad. When questioned about the missing chain from the second kiosk, one of the subjects pulled out her pockets to show she didn’t have anything. However, at that point, the missing chain fell to the floor. The police were called. One subject stayed at the kiosk. The second subject ran after claiming she didn’t have anything in her bags. While being arrested, the subject pointed out that the one who ran stole the chain.

The first female was described as Hispanic or Italian. She is 5’4″ and has a medium build. She is approximately 35-years-old.
